Digitisation is a strategic pillar of Vision 2030.

There has been significant growth in talented Saudi nations who are fast becoming digital experts in helping to drive the digitisation of Saudi Arabia. Digitisation is transforming value chains and business models around the world, and significant paradigm shifts are accompanying this major trend. Digitisation and a strong digital economy is the future.  Most businesses in Saudi Arabia are looking closely at the Customer Experience/Journey to shape digital transformation; banks are reducing branch numbers and providing a more efficient service by way of Smart ATM’s, web and mobile banking and verging into robotic/VR assistants.  Retail markets in Saudi are transitioning away from traditional physical strategic models in favour of E-commerce and M-Commerce platforms and will potentially utilise VR/AR models to create a more tailored customer-centric experience.

There has been a noticeable increase in demand for Experiential personnel in-house.

The demand for experienced developers and programmers in Saudi Arabia that looks at implementing more UX/UI and web technologies and mobile applications is on the rise. Programming languages which prioritise scalabilities such as Python and PHP are advancing quickly, and the talent that can work with these languages are needed in the market. Media and advertising spend from Agency sides are declining due to clients transitioning budgetary spend in-house. In Saudi Arabia in line with other markets, the requirements for traditional copywriters and artists who have not adjusted with digitisation will struggle as the market continues to evolve.

Saudi Arabia is now aiming to decrease its dependence on oil and hence diversify its economy through digitisation.

As the country is now moving away from oil, it is promoting digital culture through Saudi Vision 2030.  One of the measures includes promoting a digital culture by exploiting the power of the Internet and social media. As it has been seen in our society, a large number of Saudi women are now marketing their skills and abilities using social media platforms, allowing them to establish a successful business.
